|1st day of 2nd grade!|
|His new backpack -- he insisted that I put "Conman" on there this year. Ha!|
We had big plans to walk to school today, but right as we were leaving it started raining. So we drove a little closer to the school and walked with an umbrella. Kaitlynn was just as excited as Connor for his 1st day.

We walked Connor to his new classroom and got him settled at his desk. The kids were all SO quiet this morning. First day jitters??

We wished Connor and Mrs. Sartor a great day at school, and we also changed him from a car rider to a "hiker" as his method for getting home from school. We live so close to the school that we are thinking he'll make a great walker and save me a lot of hours in the car lines each afternoon.
So when it came time for dismissal, Kaitlynn and I walked over to the school to wait for Connor and stopped to chat with several folks along the way. It was a breezy, overcast afternoon but we were worried about the threat of rain. Sure enough, just when the walkers were released, the skies opened up and the rain started coming!

We started walking quickly back towards home, but the more we walked, the harder the rain came down. Soon enough, it was a downpour! Our clothes were drenched even though we had an umbrella. I told Connor, "Welcome to being a walker!" Ha!
|Finally back home, he was drenched!|
We finally made it home and dumped all our clothes into the washing machine. I may have to buy another new backpack, this time making sure it's waterproof, ha!
Finally, I was able to hear all about Connor's 1st day of 2nd grade. He LOVED it and he LOVES his teacher! We are so blessed to attend such an amazing school with top notch teachers, and we have another exciting school year ahead to look forward to!
